1980′s animation and toys hold a special place in my heart, so when dave perillo asked me to be a part of the mattel-sponsored show he curated at gallery 1988, i couldn’t agree quickly enough.
i’ve long loved all aspects of “masters of the universe”, from the insane host of characters the toy line had to offer to the psychedelic, wholesome fun the filmation animated series presented. such a blast to be able to travel back to one of my favorite universes.
the mattel show kicks off at 7PM gallery 1988 this friday, august 14. prints will be available first at the opening and then online.

excited to finally show off my new dark hall mansion prints for the sci-fi classic “invasion of the body snatchers”. a long time in development, i wanted to make sure the image captured the paranoia and fear that dr. miles bennell and becky driscoll feel as they navigate through a transformed society near the film’s climax.
all editions of the print will drop on wednesday, july 22. full info follows.
springing forth from the info•rama gallery show that kevin tong and i collaborated on in august of 2014, kevin is rolling the idea into a full-fledged brand. new posters from every corner of the info-verse will be coming down the pike from a plethora of talented artists/illustrators/designers.
“history & basics of american football” is my first print for the new venture and is available at inforamaart.

kudos to nautilus art prints for offering me an assignment that forced me outside of my wheelhouse.
despite being wildly popular in europe, jacques tati‘s films had never pinged on my radar. having no background with the films, nautilus owners jack and laurent suggested i tackle “mon oncle”, one of the most revered and visually rich in tati’s canon. jumping into a pop culture property with zero prior knowledge of the subject was a unique and refreshing experience. i hope that experience shows in the final print.
